Angels to honor Fregosi before Tuesday's game

ANAHEIM -- The Angels will honor the late Jim Fregosi with a pregame ceremony before Tuesday's game against Philadelphia.

Fregosi was a six-time All-Star shortstop with the Angels and managed both the Angels and Phillies. He died in February due to complications from a stroke.

The ceremony will feature a video tribute to Fregosi, an on-field presentation to the family and Jim Fregosi Jr.'s ceremonial first pitch. Both teams will wear patches remembering Fregosi and his No. 11 will be stenciled on the field.

Fregosi was selected by the Angels in the December 1960 expansion draft, and his number was retired by the franchise in 1988.
